A female transgender MMA fighter who just kicked an opponent's ass in 39 seconds has set her sights on the UFC.
Fallon Fox was born a man. In 2006, when she was 30, she had gender reassignment surgery.
Fox is now a MMA fighter for the Championship Fighting Alliance (CFA). Her record is 2 and 0 after destroying Ericka Newsome Saturday night in 39 seconds with a vicious knee to the head.
Fox says she now wants to fight "at the highest level" -- which in the MMA world is only one place -- the UFC.
Fox insists she is a woman in every respect and just happens to fall into the category of postoperative transsexual. She compares herself to any other category of women, including blacks, lesbians and the disabled.
Fox says she has no advantage over naturally born women.
The owner of CFA, Jorge De La Noval, tells TMZ, "CFA is an organization which does not discriminate against any fighter ... as long as they are professionally licensed."
As for fighting in the UFC, Dana White tells us to fight in the UFC ... Fox would have to get the green light from the state athletic commission. But he also says Fox hasn't proved herself yet ... the 2 women she's beat have never won a fight.
ana says, "She's gotta win some real fights to even talk about the UFC." And Dana warns, "It's not like transgenders who play golf or baseball. UFC is a contact sport."
